This Year, Have a Miraculous Chanukah!


The Perfect Family Trip

The holiday season is a great time for a visit to Israel. The air is crisp and the sunsets are gorgeous. Most importantly, it's Chanukah! Chanukah in Israel means candles being lit everywhere and bakeries filled with seasonal delights. Whether you need a quick getaway from work, or your children want a taste of Israel, all of your Chanukah desires can be found right here.

Menorah Lighting

You won't need to bring your menorah to Israel - just head out to the kotel for a public lighting or buy one at any store. Your children might even get some jelly donuts out of the ordeal. You also won't need a tour guide to see the candles in doorways and window sills. Take a family walk through the Jewish Quarter or the neighborhood of Nachlaot to soak in the light.

Props are made from or depicting industrial materials, making for strange and unique results. The Aluminum Show has been called "spectacular" by critics. Click here to get the full scoop!

Potato Latkes

Potato latkes are a part of our Jewish tradition - and they're delicious! The Quarter Cafe in the Old City has them on the menu, special for Chanukah. Making latkes is enjoyable too! Just a few potatoes, onions, and a whole bunch of oil make the most delicious latkes. Perfect your latkes with this great recipe. Don't forget to buy some chocolate coins for dessert!

Arts and Crafts

For a fun children's activity, visit any mall or public park: Chanukah arts and crafts workshops can be found everywhere. Dreidels and candles are easy to make, and fun for adults as well. Your kids will get a chance to mingle with other children while at the same time taking home a souvenir.
